dc.description.abstractPresence of peace and security are very important for the socio-economic and political development of any region. In a bid to ensure that peace and security are effectively maintained and promoted in the East African region, the EAC Protocol on Peace and Security was established. However, one of its major setbacks is that it contains weak institutions that are incomprehensive in nature. Unfortunately, such an aspect has the potential of hindering its effective implementation. Thus, this study analyses the efficacy of the EAC Protocol in preventing and managing security threats in the East African region from an institutional perspective. It achieves this by discussing the legal and institutional frameworks of the EAC Protocol and then assessing the inadequacies that exist in the latter. This study adopts a doctrinal research methodology that involves discussing relevant legal instruments, as well as books, journal articles, reports and online sources, as it makes its analysis. Further, it conducts a comparative study by assessing the legal and institutional frameworks of the ECOWAS Protocol and also uses two case studies. From the analysis that is made, it is established that the EAC Protocol is largely ineffective because it has an incomprehensive institutional framework that hinders its effective implementation. In a bid to address the foregoing, this study recommends that the EAC Protocol should be amended so as to revamp the features of its institutional framework – through enhancing its established institutional structures, incorporating relevant institutions and roles, and establishing an effective peace and security funden_US
